The Sunday Edition beach reads: Canadian YA


Few genres have experienced the growth in the past 15 years like young adult fiction has, thanks to commercially successful series like Harry Potter, Twilight and The Hunger Games. In this edition of TSE Goes to the Beach, guest host Alison Smith has a chat with two stars among Canada's young adult fiction writers: Moira Young, author of the acclaimed dystopian Dust Lands trilogy, and Rachel Hartman, who recently penned the dragon-filled fantasy novel Seraphina.
